The Boston Bruins might’ve breathed a sigh of relief after the Washington Capitals downed Pittsburgh, 6-3, Wednesday.

The Bruins, who have to face Washington Saturday at the Verizon Center, couldn’t have been encouraged much by superstar Alexander Ovechkin breaking out of a four-game goal drought with two scores. But at least the Bruins can take solace in the fact that he won’t be waiting to bust out against them.

Tarik El-Bashir covered the Caps’ exciting win over the Pens for the Washington Post. Also in the Post, Barry Svrluga described the “melodrama” in the latest installment of Pens-Caps.

Saturday, the Bruins will have their hands full whether Ovechkin is hot, cold or mildly chilled. Remember, Washington won the only previous meeting between the two teams.
